The Million Bottle Club has announced its 2015 recipients, recognizing growers who have recycled more than 1 million plastic water bottles into plant containers. This is the third year the Million Bottle Club, organized by McConkey’s rEarth plastic water bottle recycling program, has given awards to growers.

“Million Bottle Club honorees can take pride in keeping bottles out of streets, landfills and oceans,” said Dave Edenfield, business development manager for McConkey. “And they’re doing this simply by following their own green production practices, including growing in 100 percent recycled, curbside-recyclable rEarth containers.”
